I love caramel corn, I love bacon, so this sounded too good to be true. I was overjoyed when I got a sample bag. You can find Chunky Pig around San Francisco at speciality grocery stores, and apparently in Portland, too. The caramel corn is gluten-free and dairy-free, if that matters to you. The other ingredients are quality, they use real Vermont maple syrup and Niman Ranch candied bacon. But ... I sadly didn't love it.

Flavor-wise, it was good. Popcorn coating-wise, it was good. But ... the kernels were soft, and not crispy or crunchy. I put it in the freezer, and it was much better after it froze a bit (which actually, I always like my caramel corn better frozen, try it sometime!)
This was almost awesome, but not quite.
